Interrobang Theatre Project has announced its tenth season, entitled “No Man’s Land” — all about journeys into the unknown.
This fall, Interrobang will present the U.S premiere of Elinor Cook’s British drama OUT OF LOVE, exploring the effects of a patriarchal society on the emotional trajectory of young women. Artistic Director Georgette Verdin directs.
Next spring, the company marks its 10th anniversary with a revival of its very first production: Daniel MacIvor’s drama HERE LIES HENRY, newly staged by Artistic Producer Elana Elyce. The single-actor show pits one man against himself as he dissects his desires and failures in a self-imposed purgatory.
The season concludes next summer with Brandon Tessers’ SEXBOT, developed in collaboration with Interrobang’s ensemble. The dark comedy takes audiences to the fringes of the near future where man and machine are asked to coexist, forcing humanity to re-examine the nature of love, lust and life. Verdin and Matthew Nerber co-direct.
The 2019-20 season will be staged at Interrobang’s resident home, Rivendell Theatre, 5779 N. Ridge Ave. in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood. Subscriptions and single tickets for OUT OF LOVE are currently available at www.interrobangtheatreproject.org.
